The Amped Software team is in Rennes France this week for the 9th IEEE International Workshop on Information Forensics and Security (WIFS) 2017.
WIFS is the primary annual event organised by the IEEE Information Forensics and Security (IFS) Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. Its major objective is to bring together researchers from relevant disciplines to exchange new ideas and the latest results and to discuss emerging challenges in different areas of information security.
WIFS 2017 will feature keynote lectures, tutorials, and technical sessions. Topics of interest broadly include (but are not limited to): Forensics Analysis, Biometrics, Secure Communication, Multimedia Security, Information Theoretic Security, Cybersecurity, Hardware Security, Surveillance, Network Security, Applied Cryptography (See the Program of the week).
WIFS is one of the highest level conferences worldwide in the field of image authentication. Given that everything we do is backed by science, and that all new features and tools are based on scientific research, it’s very important for us to be present at events like this and also to be a sponsor of this event.
Amped Software is having a demo session today on Forensic Image and Video Enhancement and Authentication.
If you missed it, don’t worry! We will be around all day today and tomorrow too.
See you there!
This year, we will attend Milipol Paris together with our integration partner, Griffeye.
Come visit the Amped and Griffeye team in Hall 6, Aisle A, Booth 148 (it’s a big event!) to see for yourself how the integrated solutions work.
More about the partnership
Griffeye’s Analyze DI and Analyze CS can be used to handle large volumes of images and videos, filter irrelevant digital files, prioritise, correlate and identify the most pertinent material in investigations. Amped FIVE, Amped Authenticate and Amped DVRConv enable in-depth analysis of images and videos, convert unplayable videos to standard formats, detect tampering of material, and enhance quality of video files to provide an overview of any content requiring further analysis. Using an open API, images and videos can now be passed between Griffeye and Amped, removing the labour intensive process of bringing evidence separately into each application.

Meet Amped Software’s Founder and CEO, Martino Jerian, at the DIC (Digital Investigation Conference) event in Vienna, Austria, on 25 October.
Martino will be presenting the following workshop from 11:30 – 12:15 in Sala Terrena:
Practical Forensic Image and Video Analysis
You’ve seen it over and over in famous TV shows like CSI: using technology to magically “enhance” low quality videos. Video analysis is one of the most fascinating fields of digital and media forensics, but there’s much more to it than simply enhancing a picture. This workshop will tell you the truth about video analysis and provide a summary of all the steps needed to get evidence out of the source (typically a digital video recorder), extract parts of interest, properly enhance them, take measurements, and prepare the results for presentation in the courtroom. The full workflow can be managed with the software Amped FIVE, which is being used daily by top law enforcement forensic labs worldwide. We will also look at the current tools available in Amped Authenticate, the leading software for forensic image authentication, camera ballistics and tampering detection.
The DIC conference provides a platform for computer forensic experts, vendors, partners and sponsors working in Digital Investigations and E-Discovery. It features independent keynotes and offers workshops to increase skills and to learn more about software and hardware solutions in the market.
The Digital Investigations Conference will be held at:
Landesverteidigungs-Akademie (LVAk), Sala Terrena
1070 Wien, Österreich
